High-iron recipes

Thanks4Food | Dec 22, 2012 08:38 AM

I've been found to have iron-deficiency anemia such that I'm going to need IV treatments of iron (plus other testing to see what's up). But with Christmas and New Year's I'm afraid they won't be able to get me started for a while (I'd go today if I could). I know it's not going to be a lot of help, but I'd like to at least modify plans for Christmas dinner with some high-iron foods. I had already planned on Swedish meatballs (meatballs made and in the freezer), but I'm thinking of adding a high-iron spinach salad or something. Any suggestions?

I found a tasty-sounding strawberry, avocado, spinach salad recipe online but here's a question: would thawed, frozen strawberries still work, do you think? Unlikely I could find decent fresh ones. I do have some satsuma oranges though, and guess I could use those instead.

Thanks--I appreciate any help!

P.S. Since I'm really wiped out with fatigue, they'll have to be EASY recipes.
